For thousands of years, the question has been asked: How
do you get through the turbulence of life?
We are hurtling towards a pivotal moment for humanity, a
point in time when what we do next could determine the
future of our species. Economic, environmental, technological
and humanitarian experts suggest we are nearing an
unrecoverable crisis point for life on our planet. It’s a situation
that historian and cognitive scientist Noam Chomsky describes
as a perfect storm, one that could lead to a breakdown of
civilisation as we know it unless something changes—fast
On a personal level, it seems that no matter where you travel
or who you meet, people are feeling the intensity of modern
life, and are struggling to find happiness and focus amid its
relentless turbulence. Technology, the internet, the smartphone:
they were all going to make our lives simpler, weren’t they?
We have made incredible technological advances, and we in the
West have access to more abundance than ever before, but
how are we actually feeling right now? Our minds and hearts
are taking a battering and, for many people, it’s hard to tell
whether things are getting better—or worse.
